Let me guess ... We’re raising deductibles again?
You’re faced with another increase in medical costs. Should you increase deductibles again? Change carriers? What about life insurance and disability plans — considerations often overlooked.
We don’t claim to hold the magic bullet. But we do use a comprehensive, holistic view to shape your benefits strategy. It starts with education and benchmarking, followed by an evaluation of carriers, designs, funding options, and contributions options. We combine decades of experience with up-to-date best practices to merge tried-and-true solutions with cutting-edge ideas. From self-funding to tiered network designs to HSA-compatible plans to private-exchange models, we are here to be your guide.
Do my benefits even make sense for our organization?
Do your employees appreciate your benefits? And if you increase copays, what would that do to your competitiveness and employee brand?
A solid first step in analyzing a benefits program is to assess where you are today against certain benchmarks. How do the benefits you offer compare with your competitors’? How do your medical plan deductibles compare? Are other employers looking at certain designs or funding alternatives in different ways?
We draw on national and regional survey data to illustrate the competitive landscape and provide actionable insight. This level of benchmarking provides you with the insight to make key strategic decisions on benefits offerings, designs, funding, and other features like contributions. It’s the difference between intuition and making decisions from an informed perspective!
Did someone say free pizza benefit with a student loan repayment on the side?
To succeed in today’s dynamic labor market, you can’t stand still! Generational considerations are often overlooked, and the traditional benefits package you offered over the years may not be the one to offer all employees going forward. Millennials, Gen Xers, and baby boomers all have different preferences and needs when it comes to benefits. So, we work with our clients to develop solutions that evolve with their employees’ changing needs. Our research-backed insights let you offer relevant options to a multigenerational workforce.
